1915 – March 12

We seem to have done very well at the front at Neuve Chapelle N. of La Bassée, a very important move which almost turns the impregnable La Bassée and tends to release Lille which we want very much. [pencilled note in margin: “Failure”] I went over to Sotteville to see some of the trains of German prisoners going through – they seem well fed well clothed and delighted to be prisoners – getting quite warm and springlike, walked with Fernie, strawberries and Veronica out.
